meteorite museum renovation concept | 2016

Design concept for renovation of a modernist Soviet building, initially built to house the expansive meteorite collection of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Futuristic, minimal, spaceship-esque aesthetic directs all attention towards the ‘alien’ substances on display. Major design goal was restoration of building’s original structural appearance after decades of misuse and decay. 4

art warehouse building repurposing | 2015

Physically scaling the proportions of an exhisting art building, belonging to the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow, a new ‘art warehouse’ is created for large-scale in-house art production. The building features a rough, industrial design language permitting heavy use of a variety of workshops from plaster casting to welding and woodwork, as well as a variety of external and internal exhibit spaces. 8

A black Concrete Canvas tunnel transports the visitor to ‘the other world’ in a design strategy for an exhibit of exquisite ancient burial artifacts from the British Museum collection, and becomes a bold obstruction of a pavilion’s simple architecture. 20
